Hello...my A4 recently hit 130,000 miles (it's a 2003) and I've been pouring money into it. I need to get out, and want to buy something new so I can have a warranty again (which will be a nice change). My budget is somewhat constrained, however, so i've been looking for deals. I've got it narrowed down to a 2007 9-3 (which after my GMS discount and incentives I can get for around $24k) or a 2008 Nissan Altima coupe (again, around $24k). The longer warranty of the Saab really appeals to me, but everywhere I go people point, moan and warn me to beware the curse of Saab's horrible reliability. I've been trying to do as much research as possible before pestering people here, but I can't find much on how good/bad 2007 9-3s are. Can I expect better reliability than an A4? Are there any common "gotchas"? (like the Audi oil sludge, coil packs, etc.) Also, does anyone happen to know what Saab/GM charges for an extended warranty? Sorry, and thanks!
